By tailoring the parameters during query definition, ICFRP can be used for:
- reactivity mapping
- functional group library design
- scaffold modification
So typical application fields for ICFRP are: identification of new lead structures in medicinal chemistry, analysis of the chemical space around a set of known molecules, generation of molecules with possible bioisosteres, and identification of compounds not covered by a patent.
ICFRP is an add-on module of ICSYNTH and can be accessed via a stand-alone web application, installed on a secure server.
In order to facilitate work with large amount of data, ICFRP is also offered as module to be integrated in (drug design) workflow tools, such as PipelinePilot and Knime. These components/nodes send the query to the application on the secure server where the forward reaction prediction study is performed and the results sent back, to be further analysed.
